Re: bike cuts out when hot.

This does sound like the pulsar coils, I've come across this scenario loads of times. To check, remove the RH cover from the engine exposing the pulsar coils and ride it around with the cover removed. The air will cool the pulsars and it shouldn't cut out as quick as before. This should then confirm...

Ray, the one in yours is the F-flow. I got them ...

Re: S&S Silver Saxon #8

By the way, the speedo drive unit to use is from an early cb750 and its spacing is crucial to working correctly. There should be a 5mm spacer in there too which is not shown in the Rickman manual.

Ray. I take it you've pretty much retired now then due to the progress you're making? Great work and look forward to seeing the end result.

Re: S&S Silver Saxon #8

Ray. You are correct in that S&S pretty much did everything they could using the prototype as a mule. They tried with the standard 903cc, experimented with 960cc and settled with 1015cc. Their main problem though as I found out, was that all their findings were based on the prototype, which thro...

Re: Strange crank case number

As Garry says, should have a raised lip around the edge.
In the 70's you could buy a blank case set from Kawasaki UK.
